Cheryshev (Villarreal, on loan from Real Madrid): "Madrid's academy is at same level as that of Barça. It's just a matter of cycles" [marca]

That's one long slump in the Madrid cycle at the moment.
+3
As far as I know the last set of home grown players from Madrid that played together in good numbers for Madrid and dominated were in the 80s. It is true that academies also produce talent in cycles and Madrid does have good players in their cantera but their policy of instant gratification through purchase of stars doesn't allow good players to stick around. Many leave much before even trying for the first team.
Well it is kind of true. The difference between our academies is a matter of personnel. Cruijff and his descendants have created a culture which has created many good and some great players, but it's only going to take one or two good hires for another top club to reproduce our success.

As for the fact that Madrid's youth don't usually make it to the first team, that's because of Perez. It doesn't mean however that the academy is not doing its job. There are dozens of Castilla graudates who are very successful at other clubs in Spain and around the world.
+1
The academy from Real is very good, but only produces about half as much quality as ours. Still very impressive, still much more than most academies from top clubs throughout the world. But La Masia is by far and away the best academy there is. In the past two decades, there have literally been dozens of players who are/were the best or amongst the very best in their position who graduated there. You can't say the same about any other academy at all.
Tweet from Gary lineker:It may sound like Manchester United have invested in a Braille newspaper, but in Daley Blind they have a talented, versatile player.
+1
Haha, Lineker is always witty in a sort of silly manner. My type of humour :)
Official: Barcelona confirm that Iniesta won't play with ESP against FRA and MAC this week because of knee discomfort #fcblive
+1
Looks like Iniesta has chucked a sickie from international duty lol
+1
Think we have what it takes to win the la liga this season?
If our defence improves a little and Suarez gels with Messi and Neymar, we have a good chance!
+2
It increasingly looks like Messi's injury is fake. There seems to be rumour that Messi either wants to play lot less or not at all with Argentina this season. Anyone could've wondered how and when the boy darting like horse until 90th minute got injured. But, this is all good for us. He gave all he could to Argentina, he deserves rest for a year with international side and put all concentration to Barca campaign.
Messi does still need to gel with the new Argentina side though. He only has one year until the Copa afterall.
I don't agree that he needs to take a break from the International side. The AFA is the most important thing on the planet and we have the Copa America coming up and we are the favorites to win it.

He wants it all though, his hunger is back.
+2
This was really a shock to hear that he's injured. I only saw one awkward movement from him near the end of the game where he grabbed his leg afterwards. He seemed to be fine though like he was sprinting around. Do players really fake injuries? Im confused now. I just hope Leo is alright and fit to play after international break.
No chance that it's fake. Messi cares more for the Argentina side than anything else.
Something to lol about..

Falcao, Rooney and Van Persie = £866,000 per week in wages

Messi, Ronaldo and Bale = £850,000 per week in wages
+3
Wow,that's ridiculous..
Haha of course we all wish to have Messi, Ronaldo and Bale instead but they're not available to us. FYI the actually figures are 190k for Falcao, 250k for Rooney and 180k for RVP. The total of 620k per week
Topbloke,

Same figures, it's just after or before tax. Messi is on like 120k£ after taxes.
you guys are WAY off.

ranking in terms of net salary of the 6 you mentioned:

Messi (16 million pound net)> ronaldo (15 million pound net)> neymar (12)> bale(9.5)> falcao (7.1)> rooney (6.5)> rvp (5.2)

"Messi's current deal ends in June 2018 and contains a £204million (€250m) release clause. Those details are apparently set to remain unchanged, but Spanish newspaper El Pais claims he will receive a pay-rise from £10.6m (€13m) to £16.3m (€20m) a season, after tax."- ESPN

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/27442531

falcao's wages after tax are around 140k, rooney around 120k and rvp around 100k while messi alone makes 313k minimum after tax and ronaldo makes 288k.

falcao is now the highest earner in our history but he is not making more than 265 per week pre tax. rooney keeps being reported as 300k by rival fans but it's closer to 250 basic wage. falcao is making 9 messi make at least 20 million euro net after his latest deal.

Luis gaining some goodwill again, I guess it was due :P
No, is devil
Apparently pep had called Alonso last October and expressed interest in getting him to bayern. As soon as khedira decided to stay, pep came back for Alonso.
Madrid are reportedly looking to close the deal on Verratti. That's an interesting move. So they have Kroos, Modric and maybe, Verratti. Somewhat similar players except Verratti plays deeper. Valued at 21m sterling, I'm not sure PSG would let him go for less than 35m. Its FIFA 15 time at Madrid.
Would be weird if that's true. It's not a CM they're needing, it's a DM.
That's ridiculous. Why not buy a goddamned GK, Madrid?!
They need more of everything. MOAR!! Only then can you win trophies!

That's what Pérez thinks anyway.
+4
Looks like Arsenal signed William Carvalho. Would've made more sense for Real Madrid than Verratti. Let's see if Real still sign someone.

Nope, hes not. Deadline day...
Jraty: Not on Perez' Fifa. It's fwd, fwd, fwd, fwd, cam , cam....
